Background Information

The Consolidated Group (Income Tax) Rules (the "Rules") were introduced in 2019, and entities that form part of a group and that satisfy the requirements set out within those Rules may elect to form a fiscal unit for corporate income tax purposes with effect from the year of assessment 2020. When such an election is made, the members of the fiscal unit are treated as a single taxpayer, and their tax return is based on the fiscal unit’s consolidated financial statements.


This 2.5 hour session will address the key accounting implications arising from the Rules, both in terms of the fiscal unit's consolidated financial statements, as well as from the perspective of the parent company and its subsidiaries. IFRS and GAPSME accounting implications will both be addressed throughout the session.


• The approach to the fiscal unit consolidation
• Current and deferred tax recognition within the consolidated financial statements
• Presentation and disclosure within the consolidated financial statements
• Tax rates applicable within the parent's and the subsidiaries' financial statements
• Current and deferred tax recognition within the parent's and the subsidiaries' financial statements
• Intra-group funding arrangements between the parent and its subsidiaries
• Implications of joining or leaving a fiscal unit
